Story Behind the art:

Update (March, 2019) Eka was born on August 11, 1978 in Tampaksiring Gianyar, a tranquil village in Bali that still has strong Balinese customs and cultures. Her father is a hard-working wood carver and her mother sells garments. She is the first child of three siblings. I'm Ni Putu Sri Ekawati from Bali. I'd like to introduce my wood carving collection to the world. After I graduated from a nursing academy, I was married to coconut-shell carver Putra Suteja from Mas Ubud, who was featured as a Novica artisan. We were blessed with a daughter and a son. Unfortunately, after 2 years of marriage, my husband passed away after suffering from lung cancer for almost a year. He left us when our little boy was just born.I never expected that I would be a single parent. I felt that life was so cruel, unfair and too tough for me, but life must go on. I decided to continue my husband's business with Novica. Thanks to God, I had learned a little bit of it from my late husband, so I could manage the carvers and also monitor the production so that the quality will still be as good as my husband's. I also joined Novica under my own name for a wood carving collection; they are selling well. I'm so glad and proud that so many people in the world like my products; it has really happened because Novica has been helping me through its online marketing. Today, the income from Novica has increased by 75% compared to the income of my husband from Novica before. "I can't believe I have passed the dark-cloudy times, and now I can focus on my children's' future, to provide them better education and life. Until now, I've been working as a nurse in a hospital while also keeping this business of my husband's growing.I love the tranquil environment during the night; it's the best time to evaluate myself, what I did today, and also the growth of the business. I keep trying any potential possibilities--we'll never know the result if we never try. Original Artisan Story: I am Eka, and I was introduced to Novica by my husband Putra Suteja. Unfortunately he passed away in 2009 after a long illness, leaving me with a 3 year old daughter and a 10 day old son. I decided to honor his memory by continuing carving, something I learnt from my father from a very young age. Dad would carve and my mother, brothers and I would finish the pieces. We worked this way until I married Putra Suteja. He liked to carve coconut shells and we enjoyed developing new styles and designs together, then I would make the samples. Now that I'm the sole provider for my children, I continue to carve coconut shells, and I also carve statuettes from wood. Thanks to my child I do not falter, and thanks to all of you for always supporting me. Being associated with Novica means I can feed my children - I will always do my best to provide a good future for them. Thanks Novica and thanks to you all, because you encourage me to continue developing new ideas and designs for the sculptures so they will be always liked.
